Abstract or Summary
  • Literary fairy tales facilitate a specific inquiry into heroine quests. Due to the flexibility of the fairy tale genre, a variety of heroine tales have been produced. The specific stages of a heroine quest must be described in order to understand the direction and goals of these quests. In order to be considered a heroine, heroines must experience four stages: separation, isolation, confrontation, and resolution. These stages can be used to compare and contrast tales. Highlighted in this study are the works of the Brothers Grimm, “Das singende, springende Löweneckerchen” and “Fitchers Vogel,” alongside Angela Carter’s tales “The Bloody Chamber” and “The Tiger’s Bride.” Evaluating both sets of heroine quests provides the opportunity to determine if there is an overarching goal between heroine quests written over 150 years apart by authors influenced by different cultures.
